Yeah, I agree it doesn't just apply to where to donate, but also how to get money to donate, founding non-profits, etc. Which, taken to it's logical conclusion, means maybe I should angle to run for president?

Carl already explored this question too, noting that it is relatively easy to go for PM of the UK in another 2012 article.

Far more people should read Carl's old blog posts.
